Cornet Chop Suey - Louis Armstrong - Mr. Jazz (CD)

Cornet Chop Suey has enjoyed a rapid rise since when they performed for the first time at the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee. The seven piece band plays traditional jazz to bop as well as pop tunes in a show style. The band is named after an obscure Louis Armstrong composition and performs a Louis Armstrong set at most festivals.

About three years ago, I heard of the existence of a CD set of early Louis Armstrong classics that included the Hot Five ‘Cornet Chop Suey’ twice. Once in the key of E flat; and also in the key of F. This was because, in the opinion of the compilers of the set, there was still no general consensus on which key it was g: Mr. Jazz.

“Cornet Chop Suey”, like many of the recordings made in February , is astonishing in showing the first fruits of Armstrong’s genius. Indeed, it’s this track where Louis first develops his mastery of timing and rhythm in his soloing – his first solo is mesmeric, full of stops and starts and syncopations, almost as if Armstrong is inventing Be-Bop twenty years before it occurred.
